    I got annoyed by the "performance" of the shitty integrated graphics, so I (literally) pushed my Radeon X1550 into the case, but because of it, I can't close the case, nor can I place back the CPU cooler plastic back into its original position.



    How can I cool the GPU without the stupidly loud USB fan?
    And how can I cool the CPU properly?
    Could I be able to "extract" the stuff from this case, and put it in a normal ATX case?

    I second this, just pour water on computer. I think that will fix it.

    Have you tried a PCIE extender? You can also try buying a seperate fan and dedicate that to your PC but I'll doubt that will do anything good. PC in fridge perhaps?

    But it's too expensive :sad:
    Also, *that* type of water cooling only works while the PC is off, and I need to wait days for it to dry :(

    Lol, derp :P A PCIe extender cable would be the best idea! I mean, "normally" I have the floppy drive taped to the top of the case, so why not do the same with the graphics card? :P

    Problem? :creep: I'm still using floppies to boot :P Also, I don't have internet connectibility on my old win3.1 laptop, so floppies are the only way to transport data.

    Mineral oil? Get an aquarium and place mineral oil in it and then dump your pc in it

    You could also make your own PC case out of MDF wood.
    I mean, if you're a bit alright with sawing and sanding, you could make a simple case that's almost soundproof, sturdy and good looking.

    Also, for me, paint a qt shota on the side with me name under it <З
    If you do it that is.

    Actually, I think that one was a serious suggestion. Mineral oil isn't conductive and has decent heat dissipation capabilities

    Although I wouldn't recommend dumping a physical hard drive in mineral oil. I think an SSD could be dumped in mineral oil tho

    Yeah, hard drives are usually mounted inside the lid of the aquarium in mineral oil PCs
